, who will lead the party? at least here in washington. today house speaker john boehner will likely be elected as the nominal leader of the party of the house. the question, though, can he be an effective leader and an effective speaker. he enters this new congress in a very fragile position. his relationship with the white house is not good. but for all we know, his relationship with mitch mcconnell may not be that good, considering how close house republicans were in leaving senate republicans hanging out to dry a couple days ago. yesterday, the unsubstantiated rumors were rampant that boehner was in so much trouble he might not become speaker. though there may be enough dissenters today to keep the editors of the tabloids happy. boehner has no real challenger and therefore is likely to secure his spot as pespeaker. but only 17 conservatives have to vote against him for us to see the second ballot for speaker since 1923, a message in and of itself. yesterday congressman tom price who says he does not plan to challenge boehner now dismissed questions about whether he might challeng

to bring bills to the floor unless they got a majority support from republicans. speaker john boehner of ohio violated that longstanding rule last night and in the process he became the only member of the leadership of his party who voted in favor of the bill. eric cantor and kevin mccarthy joined the majority of their party in voting no. boehner did find support from one key republican, paul ryan of wisconsin also voted yes. the main sticking point for republicans, a lack of spending cuts. hours before last night's votes, republicans considered trying to amend the bill from the senate and add additional spending cuts in. the senate made it clear they had no intention of revisiting this idea. so if changes were made that would essentially kill it. before the vote, republicans took to the floor and voiced their concerns. >> there are no spending cuts. we're adding $4 billion a day to the debt. the senate failed in cutting spending. >> i thought we were in a deficit crisis. i thought families were put at risk by this massive debt. what does this do about that? >> it was way past those s

the election john boehner has a press conference and he's trying to jump out in front and steal a march on the president. by conceding the idea that the republicans could go for a raise in revenue, $800 billion, ironically the package had less, $600, but he still had to draw the line on raising tax rates. that's where he had to cave and the president got to show some flexibility knowing that boehner was, had no flexibility, ramrod stiff. >> interesting you mentioned the fact that the president is not going to negotiate here but the fact of saying that is a negotiation in itself. it means his opening bid is now zero and he's going to wait and see what -- >> congress has to vote. how does he get around that in >> and the other thing is what we've been discussing these last two months is the easy part. tax cuts. the vote they took penalized only the slightest sliver of americans out there because nobody was talking about keeping the payroll tax cut. now we're talking about spending cuts, taking things away from almost everybody if they do it the way they're told they have to. gwen: 0 let's

have? doesn't sound like a guy who's confident to me. and john boehner's in the same tight spot. the wall street journal says that boehner thinks that that bill is just one point of leverage. he says he hedges by noting that it is not the ultimate leverage. when a politician talks like that, you know he has a weak hand. right now they're trying to bluff the president and bluff the american people. but it won't work. voters are behind president obama and his message. joining me now is jared bernstein, former chief economist for vice president biden. now an msnbc contributor. and joan walsh editor at large for and an msnbc political analyst. she just wrote an article about the president's role in protecting the great society built by lbj. thank you both for joining me. >> thank you, rev. >> thanks. >> joan, president obama has been firm from the start on this. where do you think the republican leadership is today? >> i think you're right, reverend al. there are signs that they are starting to crumble and, you know, jared and i, we've all talked several times about what i
